New Zealand Women 136 for 3 (Bates 67, Doolan 35) beat Australia Women 134 for 5 (Cameron 48, Sthalekar 24, Nielson 1-9) by seven wickets
New Zealand Women won comfortably against Australia Women to take the T20 international series 2-1. Australia were asked to bat, and they managed a competitive score thanks to Jess Cameron's 48, off 34 balls including four fours and two sixes. There was support from Lisa Sthalekar, who made an unbeaten 24, and Australia reached 134 for 5. The pick of the bowlers for New Zealand was Morna Nielson, who conceded just nine runs in her four overs.
New Zealand's successful chase was set up by a century opening stand between Lucy Doolan and captain Suzie Bates, who struck 10 fours in her 67, brought off 44 balls. Though both fell in quick succession after adding 101, the rest ensured the target was successfully achieved with 11 balls to spare.
